Dr. Ronald L Collins has the following 2 specialties
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Giving quality of life back

I am so thankful to Dr Collins and his phenomenal nurse practitioner, Sandra. If not for them, I would spend my life curled up on the couch every day with my heating pad and life is far too short for that. They care, they show great compassion and understanding. They are some of my favorite people in medicine. (P.S. They do pain management, not disease treatment, so it's another doctor's job to treat your disease and get it into remission. They're just here to make sure it's as painless as possible to live with while you are dealing with it. And they do that part masterfully. Your low ratings for what isn't their scope isn't fair)

Still in pain
Self-verified patient of Dr. Ronald L Collins - Posted on April 19th, 2013
I have been going to Dr. Collins for over 2 years. I have seen him a total of about 10 minutes. My pain is no better than it was on my first visit. I have had several injections and none of them work. I feel like it is just trial and error with me. I am on strong pain meds that offer a little help and that is the only reason I keep going back. I think it is terrible all you get to see is a nurse practitioner when you are paying to see a doctor. From what I hear the other pain clinic in Huntsville is no better. I may try to find a Doctor in Nashville or Bham that will take the time to figure out how to help my pain without getting me hooked on pain meds.
Excellent doctor & staff, but always late

Very good treatment results; very caring and informative PA. Dr. Collins is excellent at his job and has a wonderful bedside manner, but you do not get to spent much time with him. He does make an effort to speak with you a few moments before each procedure. As for getting an appointment, you may have to wait awhile. When you do get an appointment, be prepared to sit in the waiting room. They are perpetually late -- sometimes VERY late!
